I'm putting a APC1000 UPS with APC Network Management Card (AP9617)
to freebsd system with apcupsd, via ethernet cable over SNMP.
apcsupsd is running, apcaccess status returns the status variables.
When pulling out powercable of UPS and back in, I do get 'Warning power
loss detected; Power failure: Running on UPS batteries; Power has
returned". So far, so good.
The Overview page in the webinterface shows there is power in the
UPS form over 2 hours. How can I force a faster automatic freebsd
shutdown to see if it is working (can't wait 2 hours)
The web-interface under UPS / Configuration / shutdown
shows (the defaults):
Start of the shutdown
Low Battery Duration 02 min
Shutdown Delay: 90 secs
(max. Required Delay: 2 minutes)
Basic Signaling Shutdown (not checked) Enabled
Duration of Shutdown
Sleep Time: 0.0 hours
End of Shutdown
Max Battery Capacity: 00 %
Return Delay: 000 seconds
but do these refer to shutdown of a unix client or shutdown of the UPS
The manual is confusing (it's linux oriented not freebsd) most referenced
files do not exist at the mentioned paths...
